McEachern Homecoming Parade: Tapp Beta will be walking in the parade on New Macland from Macedonia to McEachern HS on Wednesday, October 11 at 5 PM. Tapp students will stay after school that day. Their belongings will be put into a parent vehicle and driven to McEachern. Tapp students will walk from Tapp to Dollar Tree, the beginning of the parade. When the parade ends, students will get their belongings out of the parent vehicles and be picked up by their own parent by 6 PM at McEachern. We need at least 2 parents to volunteer to meet at Tapp at 4:15, let students put their bookbags, notebooks, etc. into their car, drive them to McEachern, and wait until the Tapp students get to McEachern and have retrieved all of their belongings. Dr. Wilcher has approved students participating in the parade wearing Tapp spirit wear to school that day. So, you may dress down in school appropriate jeans or shorts and some kind of Tapp spirit wear. You must get a wrist band from Ms. Frost. so the teachers do not send you to ISS. You may only dress down if you are a member of Beta who is participating in the parade after school.

 

PINK out: Wednesday, October 18 is our next Relay for Life dress down day. Students and staff can dress down for a $1.00 donation to Relay for Life to support breast cancer research and awareness. Beta students can help sell wristbands in the morning by the tiger pole.
